Week Beginning 11th January 2021

I've received some fantastic spelling and spag work from OH and WG. Well done!

Super Spellings

Hello Varjak Paws! Miss Travis here. I hope you are all staying safe and being the best Golden Citizen you can be. 

Here are your spellings for this week. Have a look at the word list and use a dictionary to look up the meaning of any unknown words. If you have a dictionary at home you can use that or you could use this online dictionary. Try to spend 10 minutes a day using the activities to learn your spelling and then ask someone in your household to test you on Friday. You don't need to print the activities out -  you can look at them on a screen and use paper or a pad to complete the tasks.  If you find these words too tricky or would like to challenge yourself with some additional spelling words you can find age-appropriate lists on the lockdown learning log.  You can use this form to give your feedback and upload any spelling work you would like to share. We'd love to see what you are doing!

Spelling focus: Creating nouns using -ity suffix 

Hi everyone,

The SPAG this week is related to our Literacy, which is biographies. A biography is always written in the third person. Please read the information, click on the link and watch the bbc bitesize video. Then, open the pdf and answer the questions.

  • First person uses 'I' or 'we' to tell the story. In this case, the narrator is a character and you will read about events from their point of view. You are more likely to be able to relate to and sympathise with their feelings because of this.
  • Second person uses 'you'. It is not often used in fiction texts and it's rare to find a story written entirely from this perspective (try writing a piece in the second person to see how difficult it is). However, some fiction texts, such as gamebooks (choose your own adventure) use this perspective.
  • Third person uses 'he', 'she', 'it' or 'they'. The narrator of the story will usually be the writer. Some texts will give many different characters' viewpoints, but others will focus on one character, the hero or heroine, and the reader will usually relate to and sympathise with them more than others.
